OUR TEAM

RHEA SPACE ACTIVITY

RSA is a team of brilliant minds driven by a passion for solving complex challenges. Our diverse team of scientists and engineers possess a wide range of expertise, spanning quantum communication, guidance, control and navigation, infrared satellites, directed energy, artificial intelligence, light detection and ranging, astroparticle physics, small satellites, cislunar operations, intelligence operations, nuclear reactors, algorithms for deep space systems, lunar intelligence, and more. 

Meet Our Founder

Shawn Usman is an astrophysicist and former intelligence official with over a decade of federal service in developing high-risk/high-reward technologies to support U.S. intelligence community operations. During his time in federal service Mr. Usman also developed several particle physics-based concepts to support U.S. national security interests. This included developing ideas to develop low size weight and power (SWaP) particle detection hardware for nuclear operations, mapping the Earth’s natural radioactivity, and neutral particle beam directed energy capabilities. He is is the Founder of Rhea Space Activity and a Senior Advisor to Space Fund.

During his time at RSA he has developed various technologies in the fields of infrared satellites, directed energy, artificial intelligence, LIDAR, astroparticle physics, small satellites, cislunar operations, intelligence collection, and autonomous underwater vehicles.
